The Hub Users

The Hub will address the manufacturing, business and regulatory challenges to ensure that new targeted biological medicines can be developed quickly and manufactured at a cost affordable to society.

The Future Targeted Healthcare Manufacturing Hub is supported by over 40 partnering companies and organisations with interests in the sector, to revolutionise the delivery of cost-effective stratified protein-based and personalised cell-based therapies to patients. Representatives are invited to meet twice a year as the Hub User Steering Committee (USC) to provide advice and guidance on the overall direction and progress of the Hub research programme.

In addition, there are 5 Specialist Working Groups (SWGs) for members to engage around key research themes in more detail and provide technical-level advice and steer:

  • Digital Decisional Tools
  • Cell-free Synthesis
  • ATMP Manufacturing
  • Formulation
  • Regulatory Strategies, Reimbursement and Policy
